This interesting rock is perched up near the Granite Skywalk. Does make you wonder what stops it from rolling ddown the hill. Obviously happy where it is.Nice views.

You bypass this on the way to the top. Alway interesting to see boulders that balance. Most stop and have a photo pretending to hold it up.

Another thing we passed on our travels when doing Nancys Peak and Devils Slide hikes. A great bit of nature.

Not for the faint heart. Climb during day and try to come down before dark. Steep, rocky climb but can be made.

A hard but rewarding uphill walk on a hard trail that leads to other attractions. Great picnic spot at the start with a bbq, covered tables with seating and toilets.

Very close to Castle Rock at the top of the track. Other similar rocks in the area and also a viewing deck to Stirling Ranges.

This balancing rock is located near the lower lookout of the Granite Skywalk. Worth making the effort to walk the steepish track to get up there and have a look. A bonus for your troubles! You get to do the skywalk. Enjoy!

Just by looking at this rock that is balancing on another rock, you just think that it's just stuck together by a very very strong glue and nothing else. It was very interesting and a bit scary to see if it was going to start...More

Have never seen that before, just brilliant :-). The walk took up took us 45 hours. The whole way 1,5 hours included the time on the top and the skywalk. Adventurous and fun.

Just a must to see this huge round just sitting there on top of the mountain not moving, falling over or rolling away. Just brilliant.
